These are the best boots I have come across. I have tried over 25 pairs of boots over the last 3 years and yet to find one that fits like this boot. The detailing is great...but most important...they zip! I am 5'5" tall and the boots come two inches from my knee cap. They aren't as tall as most boots that I have tried, but they are the most flattering. I ordered the 9.5 Wide. I usually wear a 9, but I wanted the extra room in the foot for a heavy sock and jeans. My calf measures 18.5 and these zipped up without using any of the built in elastic and with about a 1/2 inch or less up top. I also like how these boots aren't baggy near my ankles. I have run across that too with some boots. They are not skin tight...but not loose. Hope this helps my fellow shoppers! I have tried the Lumianis...which are great...but not as much calf room as these.

Another no go in my pursuit of boots for my large calves. They are not wide enough for me in the right spot. They start narrow at the ankle and only reach the 18" width at the very top where my calf actually narrows again. Where my calf is 18", the boot is closer to 15" around, so not even close to zipping. This is my second failure, I don't know what to try next, or do I just give up?

Boots are lovely; however, they are a little too wide in the calf, which has never happened to me before! I hate to see them go back to Zappos.

On the hunt for brown wide-calf boots, I tried many pairs and was unsatisfied -- until I tried these. My calves are super big -- 19 inches -- but these zipped up fine. The styling and color are lovely, but I also really appreciate the structure. They don't sag in the ankle the way my other double wide calf boots do.

I am 5'2, so my legs are shorter than most and I have wide calves. This combination is not easy to fit with boots. These fit! They actually zip up and are not cutting off my circulation. My calves measure 17.5 at the top and these boots have a little room left. I have to say that I can't wear thick socks with them because the few inches about my ankle won't zip if I do. Overall, I like these boots. They are comfy and look great with tights and a cute dress. I have worn them several times and they don't bunch up around the ankles. They hold their shape nicely. I would recommend these to a friend, shoot I may order the black pair, too.

These were too tight around the area just above the ankle for me, so I was unable to zip them up. I think they would have been fine if I could have gotten past that area. They style was okay, something I was willing to compromise on in order to get a boot I can wear.

These boots are great. I ordered a 9.5W and they fit with a bit of room. I then ordered a 9W just to compare but those were a bit tight so I'm keeping the 9.5W. I will put a gel insert in them to tighten them up and give them a bit more support. I can't wait for the weather to cool off so I can wear them. They have enough room to tuck in jeans which is great. Great job Zappos bringing stylish extra wide calf boots. This is my go to source for boots!

Great boots! They are pretty snug on my calves and just a little loose in the ankles, but overall a really good fit. Love the furry lining - that was a pleasant surprise! I get tons of compliments on these.

I love these boots! I have large muscular calves and have not been able to find a pair that fit this great. I am able to wear them with skinny jeans and leggings with a little room to spare. My calves are 17.5 inches in diameter, but my legs are significantly small right below the knee. These boots do not have to much extra room at the top. They are comfortable as well! I wore them all day walking and night walking the strip in Las Vegas with no sore feet!

Thanks to thick, muscular calves on short, squatted legs, boot hunts for me have mostly been a fail. I finally decided to try a few more expensive brands through Zappos (free shipping, free returns, thank you Zappos), so I ordered these in brown. I had two revolutionary experiences when I put these on: 1. They zipped. No squashing, straining, and hoping. They just zipped. 2. You know how on people with slimmer legs, boots flair slightly away from the calf at the top, making your leg look much more delicate and dainty? Yeah, these do that too. Quite a novelty. Add in the fur lining on shaft, the low heel, and the swank leather, and these puppies are an all around win. Looking for other colors now.

I have large calves and it is very hard to find boots that close. I finally found boots that fit. These boots are nice and comfortable. I wear them casually and to the office with skirts. The leather is soft and great looking. Thank you, Zappos, for great customer service!

These are really cute. The foot part is snug but not too small (I wear a 12M or occasionally 11.5 M) and comfortable. The top/calf portion is plenty big even for wide calves. I've tried on 20+ pairs of tall boots without finding ones that zipped but these have a few inches of room, even with skinny jeans tucked in. The color is slightly darker than I expected but still very pretty. You'll probably want to keep the inserts for storage between wearing to keep the boots from sagging as the material is not as stiff as some other boots.

Finally! A pair of really good looking leather boots that actually fit over my "GINORMOUS" calves! Ladies with large calves, these are the ones! I ordered them from bed on Sunday (using the Zappos app, its great!) They arrived Tuesday and I'm wearing them today, with a beautiful sweater also purchased from Zappos! They are a beautiful pebbled leather with braid accent and buckle. I think I'm going to order the black ones as well. They are perfect!

I bought the black Katy hoping I had found my boot. I have been looking and ordering boots for years and have always sent them back. I was hopeful that these would be wide enough to get around my very large calves. I love them!! I can get tights and jeans inside these with little trouble. The right boot was slightly tighter than the left but I have worn them during an 8 hour work day and they were still comfy at the end of the day. The leather is very supple and looks great. I am hoping they will stretch just a little in the toe box but I am use to clogs with lots of room in the toe area. Very happy with my purchase and looking forward to wearing these for a long time!

These boot are great for large calves! They are comfortable and have plenty of tucking room. They are slightly furry inside and keep your legs warm. They have just enough detail to make them interesting.

Love these boots! I am a big girl and these are the first boots that I can wear over my jeans and big calves. They are comfy and look great. Only one thing - not really for snow/ice - the sole gets slippery. Other than that one thing these are fantastic. I have them in black and brown.

Although I always read reviews, I rarely write them, but these boots are worth raving about. I have tried on dozens and dozens of boots and none were wide enough in the calf. I am 5'3", have an 18" calf and average width feet-- these fit perfectly. The first time I wore them they rubbed on one ankle where the zipper naturally bent, but after the first day that was never an issue again. I have spent five full days on my feet in them and they out rank many of my usual shoes in comfort, and I am fussy. I would have liked them an inch taller, but they work fine with my capri length pants. The detailing is very sharp. They are a little pricey, but the leather is nice and, given the very comfortable fit, I still highly recommend them. I am so happy.

These are fantastic boots. I bought them before a trip to NYC And didn't have time to break them in before leaving but found I didn't need to. They fit comfortably and provided great arch support as I walked all over the city. The lining is soft and helps to make wearing just tights under the boots comfy, but they easily zipped over my wide calves with even jeans and heavy socks on.

Love! The inside of these boots are soft, and they fit my wide calves (which are about 17 inches around), with plenty of room for leggings, jeggings, or socks. They're very flexible in the shaft as well, and they sit a more below the knee than other boots, which I like. Very stylish, too. There is a definite aesthetic flow from the toe to the top of the shaft. Bravo! This has just become one of my favorite pairs of boots!

Love this boot...just "over estimated" the calf size! Am reordering the same boot in the wide calf instead of the double wide calf. The boot did feel a little tight across the foot but the leather is soft and I think it would stretch/loosen after wearing.

I finally got to wear my boots out the other night...and they were great! I have wide calves, and have wanted to find a cute pair of boots for quite a while. These ones are comfortable and fit me perfectly; even zip up over my jeans. There is one area of concern, I have high arches and these really have little arch support. The problem was easily solved by adding an insole. I have ordered other boots that claim they are for wide calves and have had to send them back. These ones are definitely keepers though!

I have bigger calves and struggle to find boots that fit. These boots are wide enough and still accommodate leggings. The leather is very soft and the details are distinctive. The boots are also very comfy.

It's hard to find a leather wide calf, flat boot, but I finally did. They were out of the 9 wide, so I got the medium. Too narrow. Luckily the wide came back in stock. Waiting for it.

The boots are amazing! This is the first pair of wide leg boots that fit perfect! I was so excited and want to order the brown now. I've bought wide leg before and generally they've been cheap looking and feeling. These are a nice leather and really comfortable. I actually have extra room in the upper calf, which never happens. I highly recommend.

(Almost) love these. Calf is great, most of foot is great. It's a little narrow in the toe area but I tend to spread my toes out a lot (I wear Vibrams whenever I can). Nicely made.
